Oh... So much for 'hiatus' and 'won't be blogging for the next month or so'. :P As yokie pointed out, I won't be able to resist.
For the past few blogging-free days, free time (break time from studying T-T) was spent blissfully browsing Etsy, eBay, livejournal communities, and Neopets. Yes. Neopets. I'm still trying to acheive 11 million nps to get that damn Adam avatar.
Ok. So the other day, I saw a post advertising handmade corsets on livejournal. It wasn't the first time I've seen the seller posting up her wares, but what suddenly ignited my interest to browse her stuff further was a first-time realisation that corsets do enhance and emphasize a woman's curves.
My first thought when I saw this : I'm going to wear this for my wedding.
Note : Only if I'm destined to get married, of course.
I can almost feel your stunned and incredelous stares. What? This weird piece of fashion for a wedding? You got taste or not? You siau ah? You betul tak?
I admit. The colours may not suit the perception many have that a wedding should all-white. Or cream. Or pink. Anything but rusty brown and pale yellow. And anyone heard of the bride wearing a coat on the outside? :P But to turn things around, there are more and more 'modernised' weddings taking place every day. More colours are starting to decorate bridal gowns, not just the traditional white. And I'm sure you've seen eye-popping bridal gown designs by fashion designers in magazines, if not on TV.
No matter the latest trend, I love this outfit to bits. It's reflects the medieval times, when woman wear simple dresses. I think feminism is much reinforced by such designs. Never have I seen another more beautiful piece than this, except maybe other creations by damselinthisdress. The 2-piece bodice will look equally good with black pants. *drools*
Hokay..... Back to T-cell mediated immune response. T-T
